This school does not balance academic education and christian education. The kids are behind in reading, writing, critical thinking, science, and social studies. Standardized test scores are also low, making it difficult for kids to do well moving on to different schools.

In 2005, our 1st child started at Zion Lutheran School. Our family quickly fell in love with the school; the teachers, the facilities, the curriculum, & most of all that Jesus Christ was intertwined in every aspect of their teachings from Math class to Volleyball. We loved Zion, but knowing there were other private schools in the area, we were curious so recently toured 4 other private schools. When comparing facilities, class size, daycare & tuition cost, Zion school is the clear choice for our family. We can't wait for our 2nd child to start at Zion!

teachers center all aspects of the day around proper christian behavior. God's word is taught in truth and purity.

The school needs to get more additional extra electives for the kids to learn. Such as computer courses, languages, so on. They are behind on these type of classes once they move on the any high school. Also this school asks for way to much money for enrollment and then expects parents to do this and that for nothing also. Other Lutheran schools I have checked into ask for a nominal amount of money and then expects the parents to take part in cleaning the schools or other services to do when needed. And yes, one of the other schools is new to and they don't require such a large amount of money for enrollment. Why does Zion??

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
